St. Supéry Dollarhide Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 (92 JD)
“Incorporating a splash of Petit Verdot, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Dollarhide Estate Vineyard is another classic Cabernet in this lineup. Plenty of blackcurrants and plum fruits, medium to full-bodied richness, subtle oak and graphite nuances, and polished tannins all define this textbook 2017. ” – January 2020
Blending Cabernet Sauvignon from across their 500 acres under vine, the Dollarhide Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is the truest expression of this unique place. This elevated site in the Vaca Mountains creates a powerful and lifted character, and the team at St Supéry painstakingly ferments each parcel to eventually blend a consistently styled wine each year.
Established in the early 1980s, St. Supéry combines Bordelais winemaking tradition with Napa Valley terroir to produce the highest quality estate wines possible. Famed for their acquisition of the Dollarhide Vineyard in northeastern Rutherford, the winery is one of only a handful that can boast 100% estate owned fruit. This, plus their strict adherence to sustainable agriculture and winemaking, have established St. Supéry as a leader of Napa Valley, with consistently great vintages to their name and a bright future to look forward to.
